OLD – Babes on a bridge and Ball in the Park

The perfect summer day – sun, but not too hot; domestic chores, mostly chopping up fresh veg for the freezer; and a lovely walk in the early evening.

But what about the title above you ask?

I got a card from my SIL that has been viewed with hilarity and very loud laughter by all who view it. **Warning, we have been referred to as TWO HOT BABES. Uh, by ourselves of course.

Sometimes when I am walking I come across a little league baseball game in progress and smile.

But a big smile happened the other day when I saw this:

Not little league but OLD league. I watched for awhile and was tempted to ask if I could play when I suddenly realized all these OLD people were probably twenty years younger than I. I did wonder if I could find a Septuagenerian League.

It’s Monday here at North of 43 and the start of a fabulous week and I wish the same for all of you.

One is about 43 degrees latitude N. and longitude 80 W, The other almost equidistant south latitude and longitude 174 E. Two women, two minds, different personalities and experiences, choosing a life of meaning, continual growth and learning, at the same time negating ageist opinions of exactly what ‘an old lady’ should be.

    1. I find it more interesting on TV granny. When. Am at the ball park I like the ambience of it but there is no commentary. And I do like the commentary.


  1. What position would you want to play? I think its a fabulous idea! My 31 year old daughter recently joined a kickball league. She’s never played sports before and during her second game, she went down hard and twisted her leg. It was her knee that really hurt. She came to our home and told her dad, “I got my first sport’s injury! Are you proud of me?” He was. I, on the other hand, wasn’t quite as impressed…well, she said a cute doctor from the other team came and checked out her leg. So I guess that was something. I enjoyed your story. Mona

    1. Hi Mona thanks! Honestly even in my youth I was a terrible player. They always made me play right outfield mostly to keep me out of the way lol
